Foreach

The Foreach action node loops over objects in a data source and runs a block of action nodes for each object.

Usage

This action node is used to run a block of other action nodes repeatedly. The block will be run once for each object in the data source according to the object selection. On each iteration, the current object becomes the object in context.

Good to know

If you want to update or delete a selection of objects use the Update object or Delete objects action nodes.

Example

Your app has a data source containing all projects. You'd like to iterate over active projects to calculate resource utilization.

Use Foreach to loop over a filtered selection of projects with a filter Project.State EQUALS Active to only iterate over active projects.

Showroom
